Audio: Answering your questions!

Welcome to 2019! 

I hope you enjoyed the first week of the new year.

If you’re like me, you’re loving the feeling that comes with opening a brand new calendar/agenda. Each page blank and waiting to be filled with productivity.

2018 was great for so many reasons & I truly believe 2019 will be even better.

New year, new me.

First of all, I’m so grateful for all your support. Social media can be a cruel place, but I’ve received nothing but love from you all. 💞Big up to you all (in patois – Big up yuh nice clean self). ▪️ ▪️ I know TV looks glamorous, but I promise you it’s not always peachy. I’ve covered some heartbreaking stories & I’ve covered some inspiring stories. Check out the “my reports” tab under my highlights. ▪️ ▪️ #Swipe for personal highlights with amazing family and friends who make life worthwhile. S/o to all the new friends that entered my world this year. I’m leaving 2018 with no regrets. It was amazing. Can’t wait to top it in 2019 ⭐️. 🎶🎵Song: Family by @popcaanmusic🎶🎵.
